"...Good night, sweet prince,
And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!"

I shall always remember you this way, sweet Prince.

I'll remember a time when a much younger version of myself fell head over heels in love with a ruggedly handsome Celtic Prince, destined to lead his people.  I would grow to admire you as you took on fun roles like A Knights Tale and 10 Things I Hate about You and then love you even more as Ennis Del Mar and eventually, the Joker.  It wasn't easy to try to sway my allegiance to Jack Nicholson, but you could have pulled it off.

I didn't know you.  Maybe its inappropriate for me to mourn.  Yet, you were young and full of life and should have had many more years on this earth.  I think that is worth mourning that someone only 2 years my senior left this earth so young for any reason.  I choose to remember you this way. 

"I know your life on earth was troubled
And only you could know the pain
You weren't afraid to face the devil
You were no stranger to the rain

Go rest high on that mountain
Son, you work on earth is done
Go to heaven a shoutin'
Love for the Father and Son"

It's so unfortunate. He had so much potential.

I know...and watching The Dark Knight is going to be really difficult, knowing that he's gone.

...It is just starting to sink in.

Roar was one of my favorite shows.

I dug out my old tapes. The quality is crappy--back before dish TV. So I think I will treat myself to the DVDs.

Yeah, I probably need a bit more time. I'm not kidding when I said in my later entry that I was bawling over the BBM trailer. I can't imagine actually going back through that beautiful film.

I only made it through the one episode. It is something that needs to be seen clear-quality, as well..

I was looking around through his IMDB listing and there are quite a few moves that I hadn't seen. So going to gather them up for when I think I can make it through.

I was thinking of doing the same thing myself. It may take me a while, though.
